Years ago, a criminal defense lawyer walked out on his wife and kids in Canada. Still guilt-ridden as a newly minted lawyer, he feels no better than the mafioso type he's currently defending. And that murder case appears to be a slam-dunk case for the prosecution — not a good situation. Then, without warning, his two teenage sons are sent to live with him. It's the go-go '80s and the Meyers reunite in an East Hollywood boardinghouse run by a pot-dealing former nun.
